Incredibly simple yet outrageously tasty; sour cream makes them super moist and tender. Reminiscent of the original Kentucky Fried Chicken® biscuits, but much better! Great with all kinds of meals but they make an especially fantastic biscuits and gravy breakfast (or lunch or dinner).

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Spread melted butter all over a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Stir baking mix, lemon-lime soda, sour cream, and softened butter together in a bowl until dough is well-mixed; knead with your hands, adding more baking mix as necessary, until dough is smooth but still sticky.

  • Roll dough into 15 equal-size balls and place dough balls in prepared baking dish, turning to coat each completely in melted butter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until biscuits are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

Dough can also be rolled/patted out and biscuits cut out using a cutter or drinking glass. A baking sheet can be used if you want brown edges all around but this dough tends to spread more and create flatter biscuits that way; decrease baking time about 5 minutes to compensate.
